 Preparation of nitride and carbide from inorganic-organic polymer complex - Patent 4652436
Other carbides or nitrides are prepared in the form of powder through a macroscopical contact of powder solids although the vapor phase reaction is employed when they are produced in the form of whisker.
It may be summarized from the above that synthesis of carbide or nitride powder depends on a reaction among solid particle surfaces of a material mixture caused by calcination of the mixture at high temperature, or a reaction of the sublimed gaseous components or a thermal decomposition reaction thereof.
Where a polymerized or condensed organic substance is intercalated into the spaces, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide formed due to the thermal decomposition at high temperature keep the interior of the reaction furnace under a reducing atmosphere, and the remaining carbon becomes a raw material for carbide.

 In ancient times a relatively small number of men produced steel
Carbon steels are by far the most produced and used, accounting for about 90 percent of the world's steel production.
Carbon steels are also defined as having less than 1.65- percent manganese, 0.6 percent silicon, and 0.6 percent copper, with the total of these other elements not exceeding 2 percent.
The level of dissolved oxygen in liquid steel must be lowered because oxygen reacts with carbon during solidification and forms carbon monoxide and blowholes in the cast.

 Process for producing beta silicon nitride fibers - Patent 4717693
Since the beta silicon nitride phase is the high temperature stable phase for silicon nitride, it is the desired phase for use in ceramics, ceramic composites or as fibrous material for use as a thermal barrier coating or tile.
The result is coarse flat whiskers of beta silicon nitride with a light greenish tint suggestive of microfine silicon carbide but not as fine as the fibers produced in Example 1.
The result is that the external surface of the silicon nitride preform is covered with silicon carbide "fuzz" and the exterior of the crucible appears to be converted to a very thin layer of polycrystalline silicon carbide.

 Boron Nitride Nanotubes More Amenable Than Carbon
However, different from their carbon analogues, boron nitride nanotubes are wide-gap semiconductors with a quasiparticle band gap of about 5.5 eV.
Boron nitride is far more resistant to oxidation than carbon and therefore suited for high temperature applications in which carbon nanostructures would burn.
Moreover, BN nanotubes electronic properties are independent of tube diameter and number of layers, unlike tubes made of carbon, making BN nanotubes much more amenable: by doping these tubes, it is conceivable to have devices on single BN tubes which have diameters on the order of nanometers and lengths on the order of microns.

 Boron nitride - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Boron nitride can be used to make crystals that are extremely hard, second in hardness only to diamond, and the similarity of this compound to diamond extends to other applications.
This form of boron nitride is composed of layers of fused hexagonal sheets (analogous to graphite).
The polar B-N bonds interfere with electron transfer so that boron nitride in this form is not an electrical conductor (in contrast to graphite which is a semimetal that conducts electricity through a network of pi bonds in the plane of its hexagonal sheets).

A plasma containing carbon and nitrogen ions was created and then deposited as a thin film over the surface of a silicon wafer.

Carbon fiber is used with aluminum alloys; however, at typical fabrication temperatures of 500'C or higher, carbon reacts with aluminum to form aluminum carbide (Al), which severely degrades the mechanical properties of the composite.
Carbon fiber-reinforced aluminum composites are inherently prone to galvanic corrosion, in which carbon fibers act as a cathode owing to a corrosion potential of 1 V higher than that of aluminum.
Continuous carbon fiber-reinforced PEEK composites are known in the industry as aromatic polymer composite or APC.

 Session EMP4 - Poster Session: Deposition.
Motivated by the desire to establish a nitridation environment with extremely high reactivity for the synthesis of this metastable covalent material, we have developed a sputtering deposition system with installation of high-density helicon wave-excited plasma source to supply high concentration of atomic nitrogen.
Carbon nitride films have been deposited on Si and WC substrates using reactive sputtering of carbon in N_2 and Ar mixture gas around 0.1 Pa. High-density plasmas of 10^12-10^13 /cm^3 were produced even in pure N_2 using a helical antenna, where the excitation of m=0 mode helicon wave was verified to propagate.
It is found that carbon films substantially deposited on reactor walls significantly influence on diamond nucleation and growth using magneto-active microwave plasma CVD, indicating that carbon-related sources originated from the unintentionally deposited materials on the chamber wall and substrate holder make an important effect to nucleation density and growth rate and quality of diamond films.

Although it is possible to coat metals with a thin layer of diamond, it would be somewhat easier with a synthetic material such as beta-carbon nitride.

A hydrogen storage capacity of 4.2 weight percent, or a hydrogen to carbon atom ratio of 0.52, was achieved reproducibly at room temperature under a high pressure (about 10 megapascal) for a SWNT sample of about 500 milligram weight that was soaked in hydrochloric acid and then heat-treated in vacuum.

 A new route to a superhard material? - Brief Article Science News - Find Articles
For years, scientists have tried to synthesize beta-carbon nitride, a material predicted by theorists to be harder than diamond.
The Cornell theorists "propose a rather clever approach to the synthesis of hard [beta-carbon nitride] solids," says YipWah Chung of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. "Of course, the proof is in the pudding," he remarks.
The method will work only if beta-carbon nitride is more stable under high pressure than other carbon-nitrogen structures.
